The World’s ​LARGEST ​Biscuit and Gravy Contest: The 5th annual Gravy Cup to benefit Boys & Girls Haven

February 25th, 2017 will mark the 5th annual Gravy Cup to benefit Boys & Girls haven. At this event over 30 local professional chefs and weekend warriors will descend upon Mellwood Arts Center (1860 Mellwood Avenue, Louisville, KY , 40206) with their finest competition level biscuits and gravy to compete for the Ultimate title of Overall Champion!
This years event will be at Mellwood Arts Center from 11am – 2pm on February 25th. Admission is $15 and proceeds benefit Boys and Girls Haven.

Just like chili, hot wings and BBQ, everyone thinks THEIR’S is the BEST but… they haven’t had a chance to compete! NOW they do, all while benefiting Louisville’s Boys and Girls Haven! The contestants will be divided into 3 categories: traditional (pork sausage roux), non-traditional (brown, red-eye, chorizo etc… ) and vegetarian.  Previous judges have included Chef Edward Lee, Chef Dallas McGarity  and former NFL wide receiver Mario Urrutia. This year we are promise a wonderful surprise chef at the judges table!

What are people  saying about it?

Summer Auerbach (CEO of Rainbow Blossom) “The Gravy Cup is a high-energy event with more passion that you thought was possible for biscuits and gravy. Best of all, it supports a great cause and you won’t leave hungry!”
Former NFL Wide Receiver Mario Urrutia says, “The gravy cup was “Gravy to my Biscuits!”
Good food, Good people, Good times!”
Popular local songwriter Leighann Yost says, “It’s possibly the most fun and unique fundraiser I’ve ever participated.”
